A fully healthy group of position players lasted all of four-and-a-half innings for the Mets.
After getting J.D. Davis back following a length stint on the injured list, Francisco Lindor was lost to an apparent injury in the fifth inning of the Mets’ games in Pittsburgh on Friday night.
The high-priced shortstop grabbed at his right side after hitting a ground ball to second. He lightly jogged to first base and was replaced in the following inning by Luis Guillorme.
The 27-year-old Lindor, who signed a 10 year, $341 million contract extension in the offseason, singled in his first at-bat, before grounding out in his next two trips to the plate.
The Mets were overwhelmed by injuries in the first half of the season. One of the few players not to miss time was Lindor — but now that could change.
